I stopped by the local Friday night auction house, and low and behold, they were selling somebodies workshop. The sale lasted for two nights(one week apart). Over all I spent more than five hundred dollars. This man was into everything from greasy car engines, to ceramic baby dolls.(don't ask) What the hey! I came out of there one happy camper. My swmbo even had a good time. Now this is paradise, a once in a lifetime, just to good to be true pinch me to....no no no, if this is a dream, I don't want ta wake up, kind of thing. Maybe I'm going a little overboard, but it was one sweet sale. Anyway, up until that/those nights, I didn't have a drill press. Right there in front of me was the cutest little bench model, I had ever seen. Obviously, this was before I found this site. Now I had it in my mind, that $50.00 would be my limit. Granted, that's not bottom feeder fodder, but I had nothing, and a week earlier I bid up to $160.00 on a Delta Milwaukee bench model. Somebody wanted that thing bad. Well it took my highest bid, but I brought it home. Now this thing has not been touched by me, other than to use it. It is actually dirtier in these pictures, then it was the night I brought it home. It did have a rather disgusting brand new 1/3 hp craftsman motor on it, but I had something nestled away at home that was a little more fitting.(at least to my way of thinking) Other than that, what you see is what I got. I still have it, even though I've got a bigger Walker Turner, but this thing is what I turn to mostly. It's just so easy to use, it's like you don't even have to think about what your doing.(disclaimer: always be alert and know what your doing, whenever in the shop)
